    Wednesday night's State of the State address by Governor Bill Walker was as much a pep talk as any thing else to a state facing huge budget deficits. In it, he touted Alaskan's can-do spirit and the many assets we have to work with. One of those is our fisheries.
    "And Alaska’s resources aren’t just under our feet—they are also under our boats. Fisheries remain the state’s top employer and we will work with this crucial sector to strengthen sustainable fisheries.
In Alaska, every boat is a small family business."
    Walker acknowledged the processing industry's role in keeping our fisheries going, but reminded them that the fish belong to Alaskans first.
    "We will work together with the industry to keep boots on the deck and bolster demand across the globe for our high quality products.")We thank all of these industries for the countless jobs they provide and for all of the solid investments they continue to make in Alaska’s communities.
My goal is to continue to work with them to further develop these resources.
We will do it on Alaska’s time frame and follow the constitutional mandate to develop them for the maximum use and benefit to Alaskans."
    During his speech, Walker said the state itself needed to "Buy Alaskan," including when it comes to the science and training necessary to maintain our fisheries.
    "The Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute here in Juneau serves as a leading authority on fisheries management.
The Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center serves the State of Alaska through research, education and training activities. These are fundamental to marine science, the competitiveness of the Alaska seafood industry and in meeting important workforce needs."
    A strong proponent of local hire, Walker said he intends his policies to promote putting Alaskans to work first.

    Varsity Wrestling takes the spotlight at Kodiak High School this weekend, with two Anchorage schools visiting to take on the Bears. Bartlett and West Anchorage will hit the mat against Kodiak starting at 5 o'clock this evening and again at 11:30 tomorrow morning. Saturday is a full day of wrestling action, expected to last until 5:30 p.m.
    Meanwhile on the middle school hardwood, the Kodiak girls and boys C- and JV-teams are playing a collection of games that resemble a round-robin tournament against Lumen Christi Archangels and the ESS Ravens tonight and tomorrow.
    The Ravens are a co-ed team made up of players from Kodiak Island's smaller village schools. Today will see them play their first conference game. Lumen Christi is a private Catholic school in Anchorage.
    We've got a schedule of game times after the jump.
    And after all the athletics are done tomorrow night, head over to the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium to watch some athletic artists take the stage as the Kodiak High School Dance Team and dance class put on a public performance.

Coming up this week, the chairman of the Alaska Board of Fisheries steps down after the governor didn't approve of his methods of selecting a Fish and Game commissioner. Pollock A Season gets underway, and is there a worldwide salmon glut fishermen need to worry about this upcoming season? All that and more, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KSTK's Katarina Sostaric in Wrangell, KUCB's Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, APRN's Liz Ruskin in Washington DC, KDLG's Dave Bendinger in Dillingham and KBBI's Shady Grove Oliver in Homer.
